January Jones has the pleasure of torturing her ex, Will Forte, on the show The Last Man on Earth. The two started dating while filming the show, but broke up months ago. Despite their break up, the two seemed to have kept up a professional relationship with each other, which must lend to humorous storylines the two play against each other.
According to E!, no one from the Tucson crew is excited to see Forte’s Tandy is back. That said, since there are only a few people left on earth, they’ll just have to accept him, but not without a few conditions. In Sunday’s upcoming episode, Tandy (Forte) will have to make good with the group, who he treated poorly. The result of asking every woman in the group to have sex with him is a shock collar that he wears around his neck that allows him to walk around the backyard in Malibu. The collar not only buzzes when he steps out of bounds, but also when he vocalizes too loudly, since no one can stand the sound of his voice.
Enter Forte’s ex, January Jones, who plays Melissa. According to E!, Melissa brings everything Tandy could want, but as it turns out, just to torture him she places everything far away so he can’t exactly get them without being shocked. And what does Tandy want more than anything? A bucket filled with ice cold beers. Wouldn’t anyone in that situation?
Despite the proximity of the beers, Tandy proves to be quite resourceful. After all you would have to, to be the last man on earth.

As the Inquisitr reported, Will Forte and January Jones split up after five months of dating. The two started dating in April and then fizzled out quickly after. According to a source who spoke to Us Weekly, January Jones told her friends that “relationships are a pain in the a**.”
We didn’t find out that the couple called it quits until they showed up at the Emmys on their own. January Jones was there to support her hit AMC show, Mad Men, which went off the air this year, and Forte received a nomination for his show, The Last Man on Earth.
January Jones explained why she’s so private about her romances, especially the identity of the father to her son Xander.
“It’s just not something the public needs to know. I don’t divulge my sexual preferences. There are parts of your life – no matter what your job – that should remain private. When I was starting out, other actors advised me to keep certain things close to the vest. When you are becoming a public figure people want to know everything about you, and then they pit it apart – it becomes negative.”
As far as her choice to raise her son Xander on her own, Jones said, “I don’t have room for anything else, so I don’t know how I would have done it with a partner. I knew I would be raising my son alone. It was something I went into knowingly, I was prepared mentally – and I was excited about it.”
Prior to dating Will Forte, January Jones dated his SNL colleague, Jason Sudeikis, Ashton Kutcher, Josh Groban, and Noah Miller.

As for Jones and Forte, with all the drama that could have went on, it’s nice to see two co-stars keeping things professional despite their relationship crashing.
